    surprised at how quickly the numbers fall off. The difference between the top 2 spots (S&W and Ruger) is greater than the total number produced by the 4th spot (Glock)

    Glock makes most of their guns in Austria.

    In addition to the Glock market possibly being saturated, their niche in the market has gotten more crowded. They were once the only gun of their kind. Now there are a of lot striker fired polymer autos out there. Various makers have them in all the shapes and sizes Glocks makes them. Some have features Glock doesn't offer.

    Also, IMHO, Glock hasn't come up with anything really new since they were introduced. They have come up with a lot of new models, but they are all basically the same gun in different sizes and calibers. That's great for the Glock fans, but not so attractive for people who might want the latest and greatest, or who want different features than Glock offers, like manual or grip safeties.

    I also think they have been eclipsed by guns like the Sig P320 and P365 and on the small end by the LCP and LCP II. In the low price point niche there are a lot of great guns like the Canik.

    In 2016, over 1.3 million pistols were imported from Austria, home of Glock. I think they’re still probably at or near the top of the heap.

    No mention of HiPoint, & I thought their sales would be high, from inexpensive cost. The last pistol I bought (only pistol so far this year) was at the bottom of the heap, & used, anyway. I've got a credit coming from my GSSF membership, SO it's a no brainer as to what my last pistol of the year will be.

    This list is for guns SOLD. I don't believe the list concerns where they're made.

    Not only was I surprised that Sig out sold Glock, but even more surprised that Sig appears to have sold 3 times more.

    I wonder if these numbers include military contracts - that would certainly push Sig sales up.

    I love my Shield .45 and will pick up a Shield 2.0 in 9mm sometime this year. Once I get the sights tweaked in on the .45 (still shoots about 4" low at 15 yards) it may replace my DW 15-2 .357 as my EDC.

    That would explain it. However, supposedly some govt entities are moving to Glock.

    This list is for “manufacture and export”, not sales.

    I like my S&W and Sig's. So i guess I have a lot of company.
    Also like my Colts, was surprised to see them way down on list. I guess price has something to do with that.

    I've tried to give six of those names a bump. Although, this data probably doesn't collect my Remington from the 1940's.
